[CentOS] Discrepancies in Anaconda-ks.cfg after kickstart

I am asking this here, that although a kickstart question, may have 
something to do with the Centos install?

I took my Anaconda-ks.cfg from my system, turned it into a ks.cfg and 
did the install.  Everything SEEMS ok, but why?

First the partitioning information:

ks.cfg supplied:

clearpart --all --drives=hda
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=hda
part / --fstype ext3 --start=14 --end=796 --ondisk=hda
part pv.34 --start=797 --end=2303 --ondisk=hda
part swap --start=2304 --end=2434 --ondisk=hda
volgroup VolGroup00 --pesize=32768 pv.34
logvol /var/opt/scalix --fstype ext3 --name=Scalix 
--vgname=VolGroup00 --size=8192

anaconda-ks.cfg reports:

clearpart --all --drives=hda
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100 --ondisk=hda
part / --fstype ext3 --start=14 --end=796 --ondisk=hda
part pv.100000 --start=797 --end=2303 --ondisk=hda
part swap --start=2304 --end=2434 --ondisk=hda
volgroup VolGroup00 --pesize=32768 pv.100000
logvol /var/opt/scalix --fstype ext3 --name=Scalix 
--vgname=VolGroup00 --size=8192

what is happening here? Just putting the partitions in different 
locations, but the same size?  Or just reporting differently?

Now for packages.  ks.cfg

Wow! is the installed list shorter than the 'asked' list.  Or is it, 
perhaps the same way to report the same actions?  How would I know?
